The parents will consult with one another in substantial questions relating to religious upbringing, educational programs, significant changes in social environment, and non-emergency health care of the
child(ren). In accepting the broad grant of privileges conferred by this joint custodial arrangement upon each of the parents, they specifically recognize that these powers will not be exercised for the purpose of frustrating, denying, or controlling in any manner the social development of the other parent. The parents will exert their best efforts to work co-operatively in future plans consistent with the best interests of the child(ren) and in amicably resolving such disputes as may arise.
(11) Alternation of Custody during Summer Vacation:
The parents agree that from the date of (e.g. one week after the termination of the school year until the date two weeks in advance of the commencement of the ensuing school year), the residential care of the child(ren) will be changed (as to each child) from the designation above to the care of the other parent who will for that period of time have the primary day-to-day responsibility for the guidance and upbringing of the child(ren).

The matter will be referred for mediation to a professional person skilled in the area of resolution of the problems of child(ren) and their families. This procedure will be followed to its conclusion prior to either party seeking relief from the court. While the dispute is being resolved, the residential parent will continue making such day-to-day decisions as are necessary, but will take no substantial action in the area of the disagreement which would prejudice or take unfair advantage of the other parent by use of the residential status to his/her own benefit.
